Homemade Protein Bars

Looking for a quick snack to grab on your way out the door? Here is a great recipe for homemade protein bars.  I usually add a little bit more than 1/2 a cup of unsweetened almond milk to enhance the texture. Enjoy!

1/2 cup Walnuts ( or pecans)

1/2 cup Almonds- chopped

1/2 cup raw almond butter
1 cup vanilla protein powder (I like french vanilla MRM brand- egg white protein)
4 cut up Pitted Dates (or figs)
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup flaked unsweetened organic coconut pieces (can be shredded too)
1/4 unsweetened dried cranberries (optional)
2 tbsp organic unsweetened cocoa power (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients in mixing bowl. Spread into a 9in x 9in baking pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes. Cool and slice in 3in x 5in pieces
Wrap individually to easily grab on your way out the door.
